7:02 am
outside right now. it's going to get worse before it gets better because tropical storm andrea, moving quickly toward the northeast, said to be a waterlogged friday for millions after leaving so much damage in its path. sam is in gulfport, florida, where he has been tracking the very latest for us. good morning, sam. >> hey, good morning, robin. good morning, josh, and this is a perfect example, first a storm of the season shows you don't have to be on the coastline to be a little concerned about tropical systems. check out the damage in gulfport. this is just one of the restaurants that was damaged. a powerful enough tornado, andrea, to drop down a 200-year-old cedar tree and throw it into that restaurant so inland areas in the storm with the heavy rain, tornados, a real problem. this is just day one. more of andrea ahead. this dramatic surveillance video shows how even a tropical storm can produce major trouble. one of andrea's tornadoes ripping through this gulfport,
7:03 am
florida, restaurant. >> this happened while we were closed, thank goodness. nobody was injured. >> reporter: winds of at least 65 miles an hour sending residents scrambling across the sunshine state. one reported tornado going through loxahatchee. >> this comes through a block wide and does this kind of damage, it's intense. >> three confirmed tornadoes ripping apart neighborhoods and overturning boats in palm beach county. >> in a minute's time everything is gone. >> reporter: while in sarasota another 1 of andrea's 14 tornadoes turning trees into timber. >> people freaking out and crying over. >> reporter: over 5 inches in manatee county and doppler estimates up to 9 inches. >> scared our house is going to flood. >> reporter: and there's storm surge. >> 3 to 5 feet of storm surge along the west coast. >> reporter: this morning, those florida residents are cleaning up debris already left by andrea as she now heads up the east coast. now flooding a real concern with 14 states from georgia to maine
7:04 am
under flood watches and andrea's rains already in the carolinas this morning. pretty much the entire east coast will be watching this storm and as it moves east, we'll of course have the "gma" extreme team moving with it. ginger zee is in kure beach. >> we're between rain bands because it does that. don't see too much in the way of heavy rain then a flash flood. the biggest issue here at the beaches today going to be the surf, the waves will go anywhere from 8 to 11 feet. officials tell me that's how people are going to get hurt in tropical storm andrea, by being at the beach and in the water when they shouldn't be. so if you don't have any absolute need to be there, please don't do it. on top of that we have seen some flooding inland near wilmington and, of course, that tornado watch just off to our north and east in parts of southeast virginia, northeast north carolina. sam. >> yeah, i think the character
7:05 am
of this storm, ginger, will continue to be rain and tornadoes, the real issue. some wind damage but let's show everyone what they're expecting on the east coast as it continues for the next two days really to pull north and east. watch the rain. this is the heaviest rain we're expecting. locally there will be 6 inches of rain and many areas will get 3 to 4 inches of rain. this has been a wet season in the east-northeast. it's not going to take too much rain to get serious flooding going in that area so everyone needs to pay attention to this. believe it or not an "a" named tropical storm, usually one of the weaker ones, josh. >> all right, sam, and be sure you stay safe. meanwhile, to that breaking news overnight about just how much of our personal lives the government has been secretly surveilling. "the washington post" reporting a second massive intelligence operation, this one tapping into data of leading internet companies, and abc's jon karl has the latest now from washington. good morning to you, jon. >> reporter: good morning, josh. well, just as we learned about the government's program to compile all those phone records, "the washington post" has uncovered what it says is another massive u.s. spying
7:06 am
program, this one is capable of tracking virtually anything an individual does on the internet. if "the post" analysis is correct, the scope of the newly-revealed program is mind-boggling. according to highly classified documents obtained by "the post," the national security agency is able to tap directly into the servers of nine big internet companies, extracting everything from photos and e-mails to web surfing to audio and video chats. >> the nsa technically is capable, under this arrangement, of pulling anything it wants. >> reporter: it says the program called prism was established back in 2007 by the bush administration and continues today under president obama. a senior administration official tells abc news the program is meant to track suspected foreign terrorists outside the u.s., not americans. but a whistle-blower revealed the program to "the post." the paper says because he believed it was a massive violation of privacy saying "they quite literally can watch
7:07 am
your ideas form as you type". >> this guy feels very strongly that the powers of the surveillance state have grown too great, that the boundaries are almost nonexistent. >> reporter: the revelation late thursday, comes after "the guardian" newspaper reported on a separate nsa program which compiles phone records of millions of americans. >> this type of surveillance suggests that those rules of the road, so to speak, that were set down in the constitution aren't necessarily being honored. >> reporter: the nsa is spending $1.5 billion to construct this 1 million square-foot-data collection facility in utah. some in congress, including some top republicans, say surveillance has been critical to protecting the country from terrorists. >> within the last few years this program was used to stop a program or a terrorist attack in the united states. we know that. >> reporter: the white house is defending the program described by "the washington post" telling us, "information gathered under the program is among the most
7:08 am
valuable and important intelligence, foreign intelligence we collect." the senior official also told me last night "extensive safeguards are taken to ensure that only non-u.s. persons outside the u.s. are targeted." now, i should also point out, robin that, of those nine internet companies, five of them late last night denied having any knowledge of this program. >> all right, good to know. thank you, there, jon. thanks very much. now the latest on the deadly building collapse in downtown philadelphia. the search and rescue operation is now over. the massive cleanup is under way and now big questions about how it happened in the first place. abc's ron claiborne has more on that. >> the whole [ bleep ] building just collapsed. >> reporter: this morning the investigation into how this could happen is intensifying. >> what happened? how did it happen? what was going on with the contractor, what about the operator? what kind of practice and procedures were they using? >> reporter: there is now mounting criticism of the
7:09 am
company hired to demolish the four-story building. its workers seen at the building just last sunday. abc news has learned that construction workers at another project just across the street were alarmed when they saw the freestanding wall just before it collapsed wednesday morning. >> there was no block, no bracing, nothing holding it up. it was just kind of standing there blowing in the breeze. >> reporter: they said the workers who they had watched for a week allegedly didn't appear well trained. they didn't even wear hard hats for their own protection. abc news has also learned there is no record the construction company ever filed the final papers required by the city to begin the demolition, so city inspectors never visited the site. >> we did not follow up and we're definitely looking into that. >> reporter: we also spoke to demolition experts who said the work should never have taken place right next door to an open store because of the instability of the unbraced wall. >> i would not have allowed
7:10 am
people in that building during the demolition of that critical west wall. >> reporter: six people were killed when that west wall gave way. overnight griffin campbell could not be reached for comment. but the associated press reached campbell's daughter who said her father was devastated and mourning the victims of that building collapse. meanwhile, abc news has learned that campbell has two criminal convictions, one for an insurance fraud and also for theft, and city building inspectors visited four sites where work is going on by his company and they say two of them had violations, robin, and they shut work down at those two sites. robin. >> all right ron, thanks very much. ron claiborne in philly. to paula faris for the other top stories developing now. good morning, a bit of scare for the royal family and we begin with the developing story in london, queen elizabeth's husband prince philip in the hospital for an operation. let's get right to abc's nick schifrin who is there. nick, good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, paula, prince philip is in
7:11 am
surgery in this hospital right behind me, it's abdominal surgery and under general anesthetic. doctors say he wasn't under any pain but saw something in a test in the last week and having the surgery to figure out exactly what the problem is. we're told he arrived here joking with the staff, he's in good spirits. no word on when the grandkids, will, kate and harry, will visit and perhaps the best sign for philip is that the queen is continuing her schedule. we just saw her a few minutes ago opening the bbc headquarters right around the corner. this is the fourth visit to the hospital for philip in the last 18 months. he'll stay here for two weeks, the longest stint in hospital for him and spend his birthday here, he turns 92 on monday. >> it is nice to hear he's in good spirits. thank you. while the queen was visiting the bbc today, look at this. she was spotted behind the news anchors in the studio making a cameo behind that glass wall. now to the economy we just learned that nation's employers added 175,000 jobs last month, that's slightly more than exp t

100-meter sprint in rome but watch justin gatlin in the middle of the track, gatlin edging bolt at the line by just 0.01 seconds. >> that what it looks like. >> apparently. game one, this is what game one of the nba finals look like, heat and spurs living up to all the hype. lebron james doing all he could for the heat scoring 18 but we want you to check out tony parker doing it all himself putting up a shot just before the shot clock expired. this was reviewed. they counted it and it goes. that put the spurs up by 4. that's how it ended in miami, spurs win 92-88. game two sunday night right here on abc and mea culpa to the two of you. you guys picked the spurs. >> oh, boy, here we go. here we go. >> here we go already. it's a long series. >> six more games, okay. six more games. >> you two feel good. >> for right now. like we were out there on -- playing on the court. >> all right. thanks, paula.
7:14 am
we are going to turn now to the latest on the case of george zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman accused in the murder of 17-year-old trayvon martin. with jury selection now set to begin monday abc news has obtained a potentially significant recording of martin's voice. abc's matt gutman is in sanford, florida, covering every bit of this case and has the latest. good morning to you, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, josh. one of the biggest mysteries of this case so far was what was screened on that 911 call heard just moments before trayvon martin was shot. this morning, a judge right behind me will have to rule whether analysis of that choppy 911 audio is admissible. this morning, prosecutors and defense lawyers will pick dueling audio experts against each other. >> i don't follow the difference. >> it's not unusual for them to have different views. >> reporter: each trying to convince a judge to let jurors hear their analysis of who was screaming on this 911 call made in the moments before trayvon martin was shot. >> so you think he's yelling help?
7:15 am
>> yes. >> what is your -- >> reporter: in this reenactment from last march, george zimmerman argues the 14 screams were his. proof he says that he fired that single shot at the 17-year-old in self-defense. but martin's family and prosecutors say the call proves martin was crying for help before he was killed. >> oooh, he coming for that -- >> reporter: this new audio obtained exclusively by abc news is the first time trayvon martin's voice has been heard publicly. taken from a video he filmed on his cell phone. >> we need a behind-the-scenes -- >> reporter: until this recording was uncovered audio experts for the defense had no way to compare martin's voice to the 911 call. a forensic audio expert who's not affiliated with the trial tells abc news he believes the screams in the 911 call are more likely zimmerman's than martin's. but he says the recording is not clear enough to make a conclusive determination.
7:16 am
>> the 911 recording is probably the best evidence of what happened other than george zimmerman himself and remember, we don't have the testimony from trayvon martin. >> reporter: something his mother, sabrina fulton, is keenly aware of. how would you describe the last 15 months? >> a roller coaster. when i see someone wearing a hoodie, when i see a teenager, everything reminds me of trayvon. >> reporter: now, that audio we obtained was part of a cache found on trayvon martin's cell phone. now, the defense has been saying that the prosecution tried to hide that information from them. they'll be back in court this morning. josh? >> all right, thank you for that, matt. and be sure to tune in later to "the view" later today to hear more from trayvon martin's parents. >> looking forward to what they have to say. we'll switch gears because today is national doughnut day and those cronuts we sampled here on set, remember, the part
7:17 am
croissant, part doughnut, well, they have turned into a full-blown craze across the country. how big of a craze? we put nick watt on the case. ♪ >> reporter: ridiculously early every morning in downtown manhattan there's a line, an around the block line and a two-hour wait. >> what time did you get up? >> 4:20. >> reporter: for the cronut. dominic ansel. >> i wasn't expecting it to be that big. >> reporter: taste draws the connoisseur. why did you want to be a croner? >> i did not want to eat a cronut. what kind of question is that? >> reporter: and the hype draws oh so many more. >> want to be the guy that ate the cronut. >> reporter: anderson cooper they said tried to call in and failed to get an order for his birthday and hugh jackman stood in line with the tired and the weary. they're 5 bucks a pop but change hands for 40 bucks apiece on the black market. doughnuts, croissant. mm-mm.
7:18 am
it does work. not enough to stand in that line either. everyone is trying to get in on the craze. days ago pillsbury introduced a diy cronut and they're trying to create the labradoodle of baked goods. doors here open at 8:00 with a strict two-cronut limit per person. >> so more and more people will get it. >> reporter: how do you feel? >> stressed. >> have a bite. >> reporter: are you sure? >> yeah. >> reporter: texture -- mm-mm. and we couldn't get the real thing this morning. they're too hard to find but we have the pillsbury version. this is the people's cronut. you notice i have half a dozen, guys, so go about your business. i can promise a cup of coffee, get a newspaper and kick back. do what you got to do. >> we should put birthday candles. >> we definitely should.
7:19 am
>> happy birthday, nick. dig in. it's all yours. see it all right here. >> happy birthday, big guy. >> thank you, guys. >> good to have you here, nick. let's get another check of the weather, sam, i know you wish we were here. you were here when we had the original cronut last week. >> i was going to say nick's homemade cronuts didn't do it for me, i'm sorry. sorry. we got one or two things going on. we're going to start where severe storms are. two zones we haven't talked about. in texas it runs to albuquerque. but, of course, watching our eyes on the east coast and the red zone there from raleigh to washington, d.c., could be where the storms line up. quick look at where the record heat is roaring. had a couple of heat records yesterday, likely see one or two more today. vegas, 10, yuma, 110. this is just unbelievable heat.

>> okay, gio. we'll bring in "gma" legal analyst dan abrams with pore on this. were you surprised he took the stand at all? >> i'm always surprised when a defendant in this kind of case takes the stand but he's in a tough spot. it's not just because there's a lot of evidence against him. it's because it's the type of evidence that they have against him. meaning it's the type of evidence that jurors can understand and relate to which is things that he said that were incriminating, things that he did that were incriminating. why didn't he do other things? i mean, the note that was found in his pocket, this isn't dna and complicated stuff. had did just sort of stuff that comes from the gut that makes you say, well, wait a second, what else could be the explanationy that's why i think he's taking the stand is to try to offer up other explanations. >> he did seem to have an answer to everything and did seem like he was trying to explain away anything that could give the impression that it was premeditated. >> that's right. i mean, look, the problem is while all of his answers make total sense, right, hard drive,
